Governor arm is usually located on the back of most motors. It has a spring connected to it, usually with different slots in the arm to adjust the tension of the governor. When the mower is running, you'll see it slightly move, or move a lot if the motor is under load.



Yes, a recoil start is the pull string that recoils itself.

The spindle is the shaft that goes through a mower deck and the pulley and blade attaches itself to.



Also notice the grease zerk on the spindle. This is a grease point. Look for any zerks on the mower where-ever there are moving parts.
